Taiwanese culture

台灣文化

The Cultural/Creative Industry was put forward by the Taiwanese government in 2002 as one of the development plans. Taiwanese people abbreviated it to wenchuang (culture + creation) to mean “creating new things from good old things.” Wenchuang is an ongoing movement, and many shops and products have been springing up that redesign old buildings and housing, food, and clothing culture to suit modern tastes.

We have compiled several such recent trends in Taiwan, so please refer to them in thinking about ideas.

2002年台灣政府發表了發展計畫,其中一項就是「文化創意產業」。台灣人將之簡稱為「文創」,也就是從舊的美好事物當中,創造出新的東西。「文創」是現在進行式的運動,將古老的建築物或是傳統的食衣住行文化,用現代的觀點重新設計,進而陸續誕生許多設計店舖及設計商品。

我們將可以一窺台灣日常生活的照片集結到Pinterest的專屬版面,還有這幾年在台灣流行的人事物整理如下,請你不妨在發想時參考看看。

Bento culture has been introduced from Japan. In Taiwan, where eating out culture is strongly rooted in daily life, it is natural to be able to take meals out. You catch glimpses of many people walking around with takeout lunch boxes at noon. In Taiwan, where there is no custom of eating cold things, you can eat your meal after warming it in a pot or microwave oven.

從日本傳來的便當文化。台灣的外食文化深入於生活當中,把食物外帶是理所當然的事。在午餐時間,可以在街上看到很多人從餐廳外帶便當走在路上,也因為台灣人沒有吃冷便當的習慣,通常都會用電鍋或是微波爐加熱後再享用。

Iron-barred windows have been used not only for crime prevention, but also to liven up houses with beautiful decorations that make use of good artisanship. Although such sights are disappearing due to the advent of mass-produced stainless steel windows and the aging of artisans, iron-barred windows that have been given a new lease of life are now again in the limelight, having won the German Red Dot Design Award.

「鐵窗」除了防盜目的,透過職人的手藝,也成為居家的美麗裝飾。自從可以量產的不銹鋼窗問世之後,再加上職人的高齡化,鐵窗陷入消失的危機。不過近年來透過設計,為鐵窗注入新生命,甚至獲得德國的紅點設計獎項,讓差點消失的鐵窗迎來了新時代。
